Afghanite disguised nr2

Another example of a disguised afghanite from Koksha, Badakhshan, Afghnistan. Sold as sodalite coated with Mn-oxide. But the emission spectrum, EDX and Raman show again this is afghanite showing elongated dodecahedrons. A drawing in crystal shaper with the afghanite space group, shows that this is possible.
